This picture is quite old (there is a different arbour now, and the buddleia died), but I can't find another one with this plant in bloom: the hydrangea against the house is "Unique". The garden gnome is me.

I can't find any V's at all, except some variegated dogwood, but photographed from very far away.

I have saved up a "W", though, for Wednesday.

I see quite a few of my favourites here like veronicas and verbena bonariensis.

What I am posting is Umbrella Plant which is really Mayapple but since looks like umbrellas, it is often called that.

The nursery where I picked up this pink venedio arctotis said I would love it, I did and plan to buy again this year. Annual and bloomed all summer with deadheading. Reminds me of gazina

This tiny violet has a very long name which I can not find but I got it from the Rock Garden where I volunteer and it followed me home one day.

Marie ~ your canadian white violets I just love. You said they naturalized under your deck. I'm wandering if they would help my cat situation......Its a great litter box and not so nice when sitting on top.

Great pics everyone!

Wow, I missed P, R & S. Added a couple to T this AM. I was still
looking and enjoying all the beautiful pics but too busy to add mine.
I have no U but here are some V's.

Veronica 'Royal Candles'. I think I have added this plant to each soup I have
participated in. It is a very worthy plant to have.
